Kepler provides real-time, continuous connectivity for space, making space-generated data instantaneously accessible.
Kepler provides real-time, continuous connectivity for space, abolishing barriers to make space-generated data universally accessible. We are creating the infrastructure needed to support the current and future needs of the space industry, empowering the human reach outside of earth. Building on flight heritage from our previous 21 satellites, The Kepler Network will keep customers connected to on-orbit assets through a hybrid network of RF and optical inter-satellite links, significantly increasing capacity for mission-essential data downlinking to earth.
Operating with Kepler-owned ground stations and in-house production facilities to design, build, and test our very own satellites and their payloads, we understand the full lifecycle of satellite operations and the many challenges our customers face when executing their own missions.
As we prepare to launch the next generation of satellites, we are actively abolishing geographic and regulatory barriers to standardize access to space-generated data. We are devoted to our mission of building the Internet for space, ensuring critical data is available to all mission operators in real time, all the time.

Under his leadership Kepler was named one of the most innovative companies in the world by Fast Company.
Wen’s passion is in tackling big challenges. Challenges that involve pushing the boundaries of technology and changing the way we do things. He graduated from the University of Toronto’s Engineering Science program where he was top of his class, majoring in aerospace engineering. Prior to joining Kepler, he worked at Bombardier Aerospace designing the next generation of business jets. In his spare time, he likes to think of ways to bring the Ironman suit to real life.
Mark is the whiz behind the Engineering team at Kepler. He holds a bachelor’s degree in engineering science from the University of Toronto, a master’s in operations research and he quit his PhD in electrical & computer engineering to focus on Kepler. Mark has worked as a developer for major software firms including IBM and Oracle as well as on RBC’s electronic trading platform. He won IBM's Smarter Planet award for his work on a traffic optimization algorithm and enjoys applying his math skills to problems in space, medicine and sports. He claims to have mathematically proven that Michael Jordan is the best basketball player of all time.
Steve motivates and leads teams to transform vision into reality. Over the course of the first 25 years of his career, Steve has ensured all thrusters are firing in aerospace programs ranging from the most demanding defense applications to human spaceflight endeavours. Steve’s focus on execution has delivered success at Honeywell, Raytheon, BAE Systems, L3 and most recently Blue Origin. From his start testing the Centaur launch vehicle for satellite delivery to leading teams of hundreds, Steve remains an engineer at heart and enjoys solving problems of all shapes, sizes and of the highest complexity. Steve holds a Mechanical Engineering degree from the University of Arizona, is a published technology expert, and holds multiple patents.
